the story stocks work, sometimes everyone else owns them, then they want to get out. > what about google? is this a stock to own? at one point it was during the past year. > > google has done a great job. all three of these companies, facebook, google, and apple, of course, are leading the pack in terms of driving this stock market. and of course, google got back in favor and has had excellent business results. and of course, the final indignant thing for apple was that they had to have google maps go back on the iphones. but i think all three of them are going to be great investments over the next several years. it is just a matter of the timing. so, if you got into facebook in the low, that is great. if you can hold on and maybe pick up some apple here. that is also good. and i think google is going to continue to do well. > thank you matt, and happy trades to you in the new year. > > thank you. americans spent 2012 tuning in to election coverage and those political ads. when it was all said and done, campaigns shelled out $6 billion. paul eggers gives us a look at the the money trail
the long -- to be global. they make the long-distance connection. the facebook's and the googles to ride on top of that. >> if somebody here in washington sent an e-mail to somebody in kenya, how does that track? >> that is interesting. if you asked that question two years ago, the answer would be different. only recently now that kenya has good connection to the internet rather than rely on satellite intermission. from washington to kenya, it would go through a building in ashford, virginia. 80% sure it would go through lower manhattan. dest is one of the major note for the transatlantic cable. the undersea cables that cross the atlantic and transport this communication. it would go through a single building in london. it is the uk equivalent of ashford in the u.s. i know that because the two cables down the east coast of africa both have their major london.n from there it is a straight shot. it is a fascinating place. it is in the same spot as the ancient report. -- port. this is the place where the international -- >> where are these undersea cables that you referred to earlier? and b
, if we buy something on amazon, if weak bank online, if we do a google search, -- if we bank online, is that information stored on these data centers and throw it may be stored. it is certainly processed -- centers. >> it may be stored. it is certainly processed. the information we create in doing all of these actions, some of it is kind of short-lived information. it goes out. you get back the answer you want. it operates. -- evaporates. other information, when you go and bank online or buy something at amazon and it has to keep a record of that transaction, for its own inventory and your billing records, that stays alive basically forever. >> are these data centers the so-called cloud? >> it is a funny term. it is used in two different ways. in some people's minds, the cloud is anything that happens in the database. it is the magical stuff that happens when you send out this request. your e-mail or your request for a menu to some restaurant, and it comes back. that is a general way of speaking about the digital world. technical people in this industry refine it further. they refer
be a network like facebook or google. but what's striking and necessary to understand the way it manifests itself physically is that networks carry networks. you might have a global backbone company like a level three or a tata that own the strands of glass and that own the conduits that might run perhaps beside railroad tracks across the country. you might have another company, sort of a mid-sized network services company, one called hurricane electric, that might actually illuminate those strands of glass. they might own the light. ask and then you might have a goldman sachs or large law firm that buys bandwidth on that glass. so it's, you know, we often talk about b the information superhighway as if the network itself were the highway. i hike to think of it more -- i like to think of it more that a given network is a car chugging along the highway side by side with other networks because there's definitely a layering going on that's crucial to understanding the way in which the networks of the internet operate individually, on a global basis, but then, of course, have to interconnect i

netscape, amazon, and google. when he listened to k.r., the idea seemed just as transformative. efficient, inexpensive, clean energy out of a box. but google... >> mm. >> 25 million. >> mm-hmm. >> this man said how much money? >> at the time, he said over $100 million. >> didn't smoke start coming out of your ears and--no? >> no. >> that was okay? >> that was okay. >> so nothing he said scared you? >> oh, i wasn't at all sure it could be done. >> but there was a selling point. clean energy was an emerging market worth gazillions. >> i like to say that the new energy technologies could be the largest economic opportunity of the 21st century. >> was this your very first-- >> clean energy investment? >> yeah. >> this was the very first. >> many followed, and the clean tech revolution in silicon valley was off and running with start-ups that produced thin, flexible solar panels, harnessed wind with giant balloons, or develop new fuels from algae. but bloom is among the most expensive. i heard, actually, so far, not just from kleiner perkins but total, $400 million. >> you're in the ballpark.

economic forces, right? i love the technology revolution, i'm a google addict. they're also drivers of social and political consequences which are not quite so benign. the way i like to look at it, and this is a quote from peter orszag, is, you know, how he sees it is he said, look, the big drivers are probably these economic forces, but the issue is that particularly in the united states the politics instead of trying to mitigate these very powerful economic forces has exacerbated them. so even as you have these economic forces creating much, much more concentration at the very top, you expect politics to sort of try to so much that blow. social institutions to soften that blow. and instead it's been an accelerate rant. and to me, that seems just about right. so who are these super rich guys, and what do they think about the rest of us, and what impact do they have? i would say, you know, the way i would characterize them as a group -- this is sort of a global group -- is these are global alpha geeks. so they do tend to be. and this is a difference from a kind of, you know, downton
